As a true Montrealer, I’m always amazed at how much talent and creativity our city has to offer. I love to find new brands and crafters from our home town. My latest discovery is this fantastic leather accessories brand named Holdur.

I am a firm believer in supporting local businesses, and needless to say, especially when they are run by 2 mom-preneurs, from right here in our neck of the woods. The talented duo of moms from Outremont who met at their kids’ school built their brand around a common desire to provide us with high quality, practical and beautiful leather goods, and to revive a long forgotten trend: the waist pouch. Mission accomplished! The retro look is back full force thanks to their ingenious design.

Their combined experience in the fashion and marketing industry  was the perfect storm for Nicole and Mathilde to think up the brand they wanted to create. The concept is fool proof: all Holdur products are masterfully handcrafted  by artisans right here in Montreal, using the finest supreme Italian leather and metallic zippers. Elegant, top quality, trendy.

The model I chose for myself is called the Holdur Petite. This jack of all trades bag is a 3 in 1 that is a stylish as it is practical. It holds all your personal important item in a compact, sleek design that you can wear tied at the waist, as a cross-body, or as a clutch.

I’m so happy with it, it’s so easy to wear and it matches everything in my wardrobe, It's also the perfect versatile bag when you travel.
